LET'S TALK ABOUT
W I T H M O H A M E D A M I N E M N E D ( T U N I S I A )
My name is Mohamed Amine Mned, known by a pseudonym as JadaDev, I’m 24 years old, and I live in Tunisia, better known as a third world country.
How did you get to what you are doing?
First of all, I started to play World of Warcraft, and like everyone, I was horrible at the beginning. After some time, I built my knowledge about it and started to make some progress. This wasn’t enough for me. After two years of active game time, I decided to know more about this system and how it works. The first success came, and I become a GameMaster than Senior GameMaster. After a year of doing this, I finally found my path to learn more, and that’s how it all started.
How would you best describe what you are currently doing and what you would like to achieve?
Developer for World of Warcraft Emulation community is intricate work. You have to know multiple programming languages, and you always have to learn more and more. So it’s not possible to describe this in general. I want to create a community-friendly server that brings new content and allows players to experience something new.
What inspired you most to become a developer?
World of Warcraft game is the motivation itself. I always wanted to know how things in this game work.
What do you consider most important in the IT-sphere, and why?
IT is very important since it makes our lives easier. For example, I create tools for the emulation industry, which helps you do things in around 30 seconds. Without these tools, it will take you over an hour to get the job done. So that’s what makes IT-sphere awesome. You’re not just saving time but also money. We have the opportunity to use technology to our advantage to make our lives easier. I say, let’s do it!
What do you enjoy most about working as a developer?
The best thing in this particular field is to see people enjoy and appreciate your work. There was a time when it took me several months to help someone, but in the end, the appreciation of my work was priceless.
Have you always worked as a developer?
No. I have a diploma as a Pastry Chef. I enjoyed it, but it wasn’t enough. Working as a developer is great, and you can do whatever you want, and in a way you want.
Have you already made a significant programming error?
If you don’t fail, then you’ll never learn. I did, of course. I always try to work in a way so I can avoid making mistakes, but no one is perfect.
Why did you decide to develop for World of Warcraft Emulation Community?
Emulation Community is merely exceptional. They are friendly, and we can learn one from another.
What do you think are the most significant benefits of being a developer?
At the start, you earn a lot of friends, people that respect you and respect or appreciation in general. But as time goes on, you earn money more and more. So yeah, I would say money.
Which OS is better for your work MS Windows, Linux, or macOS, and why?
Windows 7 / 10 / Server 2016 / 2019 and Linux for sure, but I never liked to use it.
Microsoft Windows gives you a huge push to do some clicks, and you’re done even with intricate work. Linux helps you remember plenty of commands, and it’s also fast, and professionally it looks better to work on Linux.
But since it’s complex OS and very complicated Windows will always be better to use.
What do you think about the IT-sphere?
I think this question was already answered. But as I say when you enjoy it it doesn’t matter in which industry you work. Love what you do, and you will be good at it.
MICROSOFT and iOS are in long-term competition. How do you feel about it?
Honestly, I never thought this was a deal. Let’s be honest. Without Microsoft’s active development, we wouldn’t have what we have nowadays.
Do you like “DEVELOPER LIFE “?
I do enjoy it sometimes, but not always, You work alone bound to nothing. That’s the best. But when a sophisticated work approach, it consumes your time like nothing else.
What do you think about an International Magazine focused on people?
I think this is the best thing that can happen. Publish stories about people and their lives, careers, ambitions, and inspirations are missing. I only wish that Magazine will also publish stories about successful and influential famous people who can inspire you more.
Which culture is most interesting for you, and why? (European, Asian, African, American)
I like the mix of all the right things. But if I must say European.
Which amazing and fascinating countries do you like and why?
The USA, UK, Switzerland is my answer. Living in a third world country is limited. We don’t have PayPal, we don’t have an international credit card, we don’t have any way to pay anything online, and we cannot buy anything online. I always had to get help from people they trust me to buy things. So that’s the reason why I like more developed countries.
Do you have any ambitions or visions?
I hope that my life will be better and better, and I hope to see my country on another level that will impress me to have more opportunities in everyday life.
Which are your most significant career dreams? Have you managed to meet any of them already?
As I already mentioned in question before, I want to create a community-friendly server that brings new content and allows players to experience something new. I’m currently working on this dream, and I can say I’m on a half path to achieve it!
Which quotes best describe you and why?
I learned everything by myself from how to use a computer to what I’m doing right now. My life story is my quote.
What kind of advice would you like to give to people?
Believe in yourself. Humans brain is much bigger than we think. It’s like lifting weights. If you don’t train your mind, then you’ll never have a good one.
